5/27/13 Update: I’m writing a book about levitation dreams, and need your help. I’d love to hear about your personal levitation dream/s and/or what you’re interested in knowing about levitation dreams. You can either post your dream or question/interest, below, or send it to me via e-mail, at Kathie@katatnight.com. Please put “levitation dream” in the subject line. Thank you!
Have you ever levitated in a dream? Was it a positive or a negative experience? Were you in control or not in control of the process? What was going on in your life, at the time that you levitated in the dream?
A friend recently told me about a dream she had, in which she levitated while at a party. It happened spontaneously, but then she began to control the process with her hands and taught it to other party goers.
She believes that the dream is related to being in a “low place” in her life. As a result of the dream, however, she says that feels “uplifted,” “elevated” and “happy” whenever she thinks about it. She also feels empowered by the dream, knowing that she was able to control the process, teach others how to do it and make the connections between her dream and her daily life.
I’ve also levitated, in a couple of dreams, and the dreams occurred at low times, or at times that I felt stuck and powerless, in my life. Yet, I did not feel in control of the levitation process, and I associated the dreams with fear. In fact, in the second dream I actually felt possessed by an entity. I did pray in the dream, however, which was my way of empowering myself and rising above the situation.
Interestingly, other levitation dreams show similar patterns, including teaching others how to levitate and using prayer to help oneself. Levitation dreams appear to fall into two categories. Either dreamers are in control of the levitation process and have positive/joyful experiences, or the dreamers are not in control of the levitation process and have negative/fearful experiences.
Even though levitation dreams appear to fall into two opposing categories, they are actually two sides of the same coin. The word levitate comes from the Latin word levitas, which means “lightness.” According to Dictionary.com, to levitate means to “rise or float in the air, especially as a result of a supernatural power that overcomes gravity.” All levitation dreams help us to overcome gravity or limitations in our lives. As the founding member and past president of the Association for the Study of Dreams Jeremy Taylor would say, “All dreams come in the service of health and wholeness.”
Although we may each have different ways of experiencing life, we each have the power to rise above challenging circumstances. Our dreams show us that this is possible. Even science has demonstrated that it is possible to levitate physical objects, including small animals, and the levitation of stones is a proposed theory for the building of Stonehenge, in the United Kingdom, and the pyramids of Egypt. “Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.” ~Wilma Rudolph, the first American woman runner to win three gold medals in a single Olympics.
